  • Pivotal LNG has filed a petition for declaratory order with FERC seeking a ruling that existing LNG production facilities not otherwise subject to FERC’s jurisdiction under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act would not be deemed “LNG terminal[s]” subject to Section 3 jurisdiction by virtue of producing LNG that subsequently may be transported in interstate commerce by waterborne vessel. Pivotal LNG also requests a ruling that certain transactions involving sales of LNG sourced from an existing LNG production facility or from a non-affiliated LNG supplier and subsequently transported in interstate commerce by means other than interstate pipeline to a noncontiguous U.S. state or territory are not subject to FERC’s jurisdiction.
